(January 10, 2013) World No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska has moved into the Sydney International final, extending her 2013 winning streak to eight matches with a 6-3, 6-4 victory on Thursday over former French Open champion and No. 7 Li Na.
So is Radwanska feeling pressure to keep the streak alive? “Actually when I was going on court, of course if I win, great; if not, I mean, not that big deal because I really had a lot of matches here and in Auckland,” she said. “I’m really ready for the Australian Open. It’s always hard to say, but I think of course winning two tournaments in a row is a good thing.”
Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia will meet Radwanska in the final on Friday. Cibulkova stunned second seed Angelique Kerber of Germany 6-2, 4-6, 6-3.
Bernard Tomic of Australia advanced to the semifinals with a 6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-2 win over Jarkko Nieminen of Finland.
“It’s really good to win a match like this. Physically I’m still pretty good. I’m getting ready for tomorrow right now,” said Tomi
